I am currently a postdoc at the Senckenberg Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre (BiK-F) in Frankfurt, Germany in the “causes and consequences of biodiversity change” group led by Dr. Peter Manning and Prof. Markus Fischer. I previously worked with Dr. Signe Normand at Aarhus University (Denmark), with Dr. Isla Myers-Smith at the University of Edinburgh and at the synthesis centre of the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) in Leipzig, Germany as part of the “sTundra” synthesis working group.

I conducted my Ph.D. work at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, with Greg Henry in the Biodiversity Research Centre and the Department of Geography at UBC and Mark Vellend (now at the University of Sherbrooke).

My Master’s work was in the Department of Botany at UBC with Mark Vellend. I completed my undergraduate degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Cornell University.
